Be Wonder Woman, My Sweet Girl

My sweet girl, I watched Wonder Woman the other day, and I had a few things I want you to learn from it: Be yourself You see, so many girls feel like they need to conform, to talk like everyone else, dress like everyone else, and act like everyone else. But it is awesome to be different! The world is a beautiful place because we’re all different. Wonder Woman isn’t impressive because she decided to conform, she’s celebrated because she is her own person and she owns it!  Find the things you’re good at and work hard.  Don’t worry about what...

How to Begin Introducing Your Toddler to a Second Language--Even if You Aren't a Speaker

If you are wondering when is a good time to teach a second language, the answer is almost always yesterday. Basically, before the age of 3 kids have a super-sharp ability to hear different pronunciations. Because of this, many experts agree that one of the most effective ways to teach a language is through bilingual immersion, which means that the new language is spoken exclusively to the child and the idea is that they learn the new one the same way as they learned their native language. For instance, one parent in a household would speak English and the other...

When the day finally comes, bring along...

Having More Kids Has Made Me More Self-Aware

I can remember balancing my small baby on my lap, staring at his blue eyes and trying to imagine a world in which I could be a mom of more children. Trips to the grocery store required me to pack up half of his nursery and I couldn’t imagine ever being able to take a shower again. I felt so ill-equipped and unqualified. Why on earth would the hospital send a baby home with me? Didn’t they know I killed nearly every plant I had ever owned? Didn’t they know I was notorious for ruining pasta? How was I ever...
